I'll tell you about an experience I had one HOT summer vacation in August. Left the room in Sevierville about butt thirty ( hour before dawn). Got to Little River roadside upstream from Metcalf very very early. First cast, without even getting a toe wet, landed me a 14" brown on dry. A few casts later, another nice brown. By 9, I was done or should I say the fish were done. It's worth getting up super early on a vacation and trying about any piece of water, even very busy and familiar waters.

I would call the shop at LRO. Daniel should be able to help you more specifically and give you a few tips on which flies to present. This way; you do not have a couple hundred people showing up with you if the spot gets posted on the net.

You can't go wrong on streams like Little River early in the day. Start as early as possible and fish from Metcalf bottoms upstream. Anywhere on up above Elkmont will be great...this is the prime feeding time for fish in the summer because the water temperatures are at their daily minimum.
